Great Book, Great Look, Great Gatsby

Namaste, Bratzies!

Don’t you just love reading? I adore the written the word. There is nothing like cozying up to a good book and rewarding yourself with the reverie of reading. One of the most OM-mazing stories I read this year was The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It chronicles the journey of a young man moving to NYC, his affluent cousin and the lovelorn neighbor he befriends. The book is full of twists and trysts and is one of the greatest American novels ever written. I adore it!

I was super excited when I heard Baz Luhrmann and Leonardo DiCaprio were bringing the book to the silver screen. I saw it opening day! I love seeing novels adapted to screen because of the creative freedoms explored by the directors and actors. It’s like reading a whole new book!! The film indulges all of the fabulous opulence of the Roaring ‘20s, but the music was modern and edgy. Such a fantastical flip to the feature! Buzzing with true Brattitude, the sets were blinged out in glitz and glam, but nothing compares to the OM-azing fashions! I was so jazzed to see the jazz era fashions come to life!!

This is one of the reasons I HEART watching film adaptations. The Great Gatsby novel has been around for decades, but its revival on the big screen has re-emphasized the fabulous fashions of the twenties! Drop-waist dresses, retro-print head scarfs and strappy sparkly sandals are totally zensible summer-ware!

The look flows into evening flare, as well! I know I am going to indulge my literary side and my lavish side by buying long strings of fake pearls and a sparkling headpiece! Even guys can get into the fashion action by boasting a bowtie or a pastel vest.

Now I’m even more obsessed with The Great Gatsby! The novel had already pulled on my heart with its romance, honesty and hopefulness, but now that its flick influenced fashion world-wide, the story has won my heart for life! I highly recommend reading the book. Then treat yourself to movie tickets, a bucket of popcorn and a string of pearls. You won’t be sorry.

XoXo

  3. I was in the air about watching the Great Gatsby because so many people said it was different from the book, that I was afraid. But after hearing Bratz talk about it, I want to see it!

    I love historical fashion. Rockabilly, 70s disco, and 50s sock hop! Love it! Reminds me of Bratz Flashback Fever line!

  4. That’s rad, Lauren! The movie is definitely different than the book, but I like to think of any adaptation as a brand new story being co-written by the author and the director. That way, the differences aren’t upsetting and the fun is in seeing the changes and picking out which you prefer! Have fun!! Let me know what you think of the flick! And the fashions!
